    Braves' All-Prospect Team

    The FO that needlessly promoted him early knew what they were doing and are paid to do this. We aren't, so we can't know more than them. Correction....they used to be paid to do this..

    I also don't see the reasoning behind signing DK over CK, and I'm going to assume the Braves can only afford one of them. Like Bumgarner, DK would be an improvement in the rotation, but it seems like CK would be a bigger improvement in the BP.

    I’d probably put Riley Delgado at SS and Didder at 2B if it’s to build a team for today.

    No need. Draft pitchers; we can always trade them for any other needs. No sweat.

    Can't imagine Witt dropping to #9, so my guess is that pick will likely be an arm - possibly Stinson, Malone, or Espino - but both highly thought of ACC SSs (Will Wilson and Logan Davidson) and Matthew Lugo are liable to be around when our second pick comes up.

    Didn't we sign the generational international FA for SS? Hows he doing these days? Ready for the HOF and push Dansby out?
